OMG!!! This looks so freaking good. If you loved the Vogue documentary, The September Issue, you’ll love this. The First Monday in May puts the spotlight on the annual Met Ball– a glamorous party held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It’s the Super Bowl of the fashion industry.

Filmmaker Andrew Rossi followed Anna Wintour and her staff as they staged the annual extravaganza in 2015. The theme of last year’s gala was China: Through the Looking Glass. The documentary will debut at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival later this year.

I can’t wait, not only to see all the drama that’s involved in staging the show, but exactly what takes place inside the lavish party. We also finally get to see the reported kick-ass performance Rihanna delivered in front of the fashionable crowd.

Wintour is absolutely fantastic with all her quips (some bitchy) in the preview. Her concern about the decor not looking like a Chinese restaurant had me chuckling. God, I love her. Check out the trailer below.

Throughout her career, Rihanna has often been labeled a singles artist. To be fair, it did take her seven tries to finally snag a No. 1 album, despite scoring numerous hit singles.

After a couple of misses leading up to the launch of Anti, I feared Rihanna’s best days might’ve been behind her. The 28-year-old certainly proved all her critics wrong with “Work.” The dancehall-tinged track is her latest to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Believe it or not, “Work” is her 14th chart-topper. A couple of them are suspect in my opinion because all she does is sing the hook on predominantly rap songs. It seems like cheating to me, but if it’s okay with Billboard, it’s fine with me. Even if you take away her rap collabos, she still has plenty.

With 14 number ones, RiRi passes Michael Jackson to have the third-most Hot 100s of all-time. Only The Beatles and Mariah Carey are ahead of her with 20 and 18 chart-toppers respectively. Watch out Mimi, the Barbados-born singer and her Navy are coming for you next 😉

Check out all her No. 1 hits below. Be sure to scroll all the way to the end of the post to see my ranking of all her hits.

Evidently, one music video is not enough for Rihanna these days. The 28-year-old singer decided to release two clips for her current hit, “Work.” The first was shot by Director X with Tim Erem taking over directing duties for the second clip.

The first visual is all about RiRi’s Caribbean roots, even though it was shot in Toronto. People party it up dancehall style at some restaurant slash club while Rihanna grinds up on Drake. Apparently, rubbing up on the Canadian rapper wasn’t enough for one clip. The second one is all that. The two get their flirt on in a pink-hued room the entire time.

Currently, “Work” sits at No. 4 on the chart. With these new clips released, no doubt it’ll bolster the song’s chart performance. Check out both clips below.

Rihanna Teases ‘Work’ Music Video

On this week’s Billboard Hot 100, “Work” sits at No. 4, rising from No. 7. With that, Rihanna scores her 20th Top 5 single. She’s now tied with Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. The all-time leader is The Beatles with 29 Top 5 hits.

No doubt when the music video for “Work” drops Monday, it’ll boost its chart performance. It might even reach pole position.

The 27-year-old singer just dropped a teaser ahead of the clip’s release. From the looks of it, expect plenty of scenes of Rihanna and Drake grinding up on each other. Check out the preview below.

Rihanna Cancels Grammys Performance At Last Minute

If you tuned in to watch the Grammys on CBS solely to watch Rihanna, you’re out of luck. The 27-year-old singer showed up at rehearsals earlier today but canceled her scheduled performance at the last minute due to health issues. Reportedly, RiRi was to perform “Kiss It Better” off her recently released album, Anti. Her rep issued the following statement.

“Based on Rihanna‘s examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna‘s doctor put her on vocal rest for 48-hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords,” her rep stated. The antibiotics she has been on for 3-days did not kill the infection adequately therefore she cannot perform safely.”

I have to say I’m surprised Rihanna had issues with her vocal chords. During a Lionel Richie tribute at the 2016 MusiCares Person of the Year event this past weekend, the “Work” singer slayed her cover of Richie’s hit, “Say You, Say Me.” Watch that performance below.

Rihanna Work: Video Teasers & Phantoms Remix

After releasing some rather pedestrian offerings leading up to Anti, Rihanna finally delivered a smash with “Work.” Not surprising, given the fact every time she hooks up with Drake, they conjure up magic. “What’s My Name?” and “Take Care” rank up there as my favorites from each artist.

Work” debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. No doubt when the accompanying video drops, it’ll propel the single higher on the chart. RiRi took to Snapchat last night to share a few teasers for the clip. It appears it’s shot at a bar with plenty of booty-shaking. Can’t wait to see it in full.

In other “Work”-related news, LA based duo Phantoms dropped a killer remix for the track. If possible, it’s even slinkier and sexier than before. Check it out below, along with the vid teasers.

They couldn’t work it out romantically, but professionally speaking, it’s always money when these two get together. Ka-ching!!!

Rihanna and Drake previously worked on the smash hits, “What’s My Name” and “Take Care.” Not surprisingly, their latest collaboration is pure magic. “Work” is an island-tinged mid-tempo track that makes me want to book a ticket to the Caribbean stat. The rhythmic chill vibe is perfect to listen to while soaking up the sun.

It’s been a year since RiRi dropped “FourFiveSeconds,” which was supposed to be the lead cut off her eighth studio album. Apparently, “Work” is now the confirmed lead single now. I supposed with Kanye West no longer producing ANTI, Rihanna wanted to start fresh. Can’t say I blame her. “Work” is light years better than “FourFiveSeconds.”

The accompanying visual should drop in the next couple of days. The pair were seen filming it earlier this month in Los Angeles. Give their latest duet a whirl below.

There’s no denying Coldplay is fantastic. They’ve delivered some memorable hits over the years, “Viva La Vida,” being my favorite.

When the British group was announced as the headliners for the Super Bowl 50 Half-time Show, there were some who feared they weren’t flashy enough for the annual event. Love them, but the criticism has some merit. It appears, the Chris Martin-lead group is adding a little spice to their highly-anticipated show.

“Chris and his band know they’re not typically as showy as recent performers like Katy Perry and Madonna with all the dancers and, while they love a light show, they still want to bring a few surprises out,” a Super Bowl “insider” told The Daily Mirror. “Beyoncé and Rihanna are both keen to join in the high-profile ceremony and will add just the spark needed to make it an amazing and unforgettable show.”

It’s not far-fetched for both Rihanna or Beyonce to join them on stage. RiRi appeared on their 2011 track “Princess of China,” while Queen B recently collaborated with them on “Hymn For The Weekend” off their latest LP, A Head Full of Dreams.

Do you think Rihanna and Beyonce are good choices to add some flash to the show? Or do you think Coldplay should enlist other surprise cameos? Weigh in below. Super Bowl 50 airs on CBS on February 7, 2016.
